JOIN ME & SID & LARRY AS WE LAUNCH NEW INITIATIVE — rally and press conference tomorrow (Thurs, Sept 9th), 11am, Sec of State’s office, 520 Union Ave SE, Olympia. You’re gonna love it!
Wed, Sept 8, 2021
Like I wrote yesterday: “This is gonna be a huge week when it comes to BOMBSHELL ANNOUNCEMENTS ON INITIATIVES!”
Yesterday’s announcement was the filing of the Election Integrity Initiative in Michigan. Read about it here.
Today’s announcement is an invitation.
Sid Maietto, Larry Jensen, and I want you to join us in Olympia tomorrow as we launch our new Washington state initiative.
You’re gonna love it!
And our opponents are gonna hate it!
And that’s just the way we like it.
In 22 years, I’ve co-sponsored and qualified 17 statewide initiatives for a public vote.
This will be #18.
It’s really exciting.
We really hope you can join us at this historic kick-off. Sid, Larry, and I will be there at 10:30am for the rally and our press conference will start at 11am and will last about 20 minutes.
Again, it’s happening tomorrow, Thurs, Sept 9th at the Secretary of State’s offices, 520 Union Ave SE, Olympia.
I won’t be making any money getting this initiative qualified (because of WA’s AG).
And neither will Larry or Sid.
And unlike previous years, I can’t take out a 2nd mortgage to help fund the initiative because the AG is in court right now trying to take our home.
And unlike previous years, I can’t sell off my family’s retirement fund to help fund the initiative because I don’t have another one (there was just the one).
And Larry & Sid aren’t completely nuts like I am.
It’s gonna take all of us.
Tomorrow’s email update with provide more details so stay tuned.
I love you all.
Super supporter Mike Dunmire: “Washington’s been good to me, and I’ve been looking for a way to give something back, said Dunmire, 70. “Eyman is the only one out there who actually gets things done. Everybody talks,” Dunmire added, “but Eyman is all about action and getting in the trenches to fight for real solutions. The guy’s got guts, he takes the hits, and lets the voters decide. That’s appealing to me.” … Dunmire said he is willing to give more. “The limit is how long I live,” he said. “I call it public policy philanthropy — I’m not doing it for me, I’m doing it for the betterment of the state I live in and love.” (April 23, 2005).
Mike was a great friend and an amazing supporter.
Sadly, he passed away in 2014.
But Mike’s spirit — and his inspiration — lives on.
